We’ve always been good about recycling as much as we can, limiting waste, and reusing when possible. I mean, we both have environmental related degrees (his in engineering, mine in the sciences) so what can you expect?! There are all kinds of tips and tricks out there to teach your kids about recycling, but I think learning by doing is the best way! Kids will grow up doing what they know.

did someone say wine & crafts?

Let me just say I am soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo happy to be back home, near all our friends and family. It has helped so much, there’s so much more to do, and we get to spend more time with the people we love.

Christmas Memories: 2012

I love the holiday season and getting the house all decorated and festive. I love the magic of Santa and counting down to Christmas with Ryan.
